3:31 am
there continues. cnn chief national correspondent john king is here to break it all down for us. so john, we're talking reprog m reprogrammireprogra reprogramming funds. the administration is putting a hold on aid to egypt without having to say it, like they're acting like it's a coup without having to make the significant declaration. what's the effect here do you think? >> what they're trying to do here, kate, i've just been having an e-mail exchange with a couple administration officials is to split the difference. inside the administration they're disappointed, outraged at the steps the egyptian military has taken, heard from senator john mccain stop, the united states cannot continue to walk with these guys. the administration instead of saying fine we'll pull the plug on the aid, we'll turn the corner on this relationship they say we're going to hit the pause button. you're not getting the money now. we're sending you a stern signal. they're hoping in the white house or state department in a week or two they can say things
3:32 am
have calmed down. let's have conversations about how we move forward. punishment but they're hoping not a full break, a turn in the relationship. >> at the same time new poll numbers from the pew research center suggesting a majority of americans, 51% say congress should pull foreign aid to egypt, despite the fact that few americans are following the situation very closely. only 22% are really following the situation closely. it makes me wonder what that should tell us and does that inform how the administration moves forward and how they make decisions here? >> a president, any president will always tell you he makes big national security decisions based on the facts and the interests of the united states government and sometimes you have to go against public opinion. there's no question the american people are tired of foreign aid. they think more resources should be spent at home and you see that don't know part. people were optimistic in the first wave of the arab spring. you look back and think where are we going? a lot more question marks than
3:33 am
optimism that you had initially. the american people are skeptical and they don't want a huge military investment in the middle east, not necessarily just egypt but anywhere there. those who are watching the pictures and reading the stories are certainly outraged by what they are seeing. does it put some pressure on the administration yes, but these decisions are mostly made in the quiet of the situation room and the oval office. >> before i let you go i've got your take on ted cruz. he's ready to renounce any canadian citizenship, if he had it. he was born in canada to an american mother and a cuban father. i feel like we need a family tree or some diagram to ofollow this. the fact he went as far to send out his birth certificate to the media, i mean, what does that tell you? claims like this, even unfounded this simmering question are
3:34 am
there presidential aspirations? is it that much of a liability if anyone talks about the issue? >> ted cruz is operating on the birther playbook he saw used against president obama in 2008 and some again in 2012. the senator was just elected in texas but he's making moves and noise and may sink the republican presidential nomination. his mother was an american born citizen, he was in canada when he was born. most look at this, case closed he's eligible to run for president. because of canadian law because he was born in canada he is a citizen. senator cruz said he didn't know that and he says no offense to canada he's going to do the paperwork necessary to renounce that citizenship. is that necessary? of course not. could he run for president with dual citizenship, most of the experts say yes. this is capital "p" politics. it would be silly season if it happens again but this is the senator's decision to clear up
3:35 am
the canada part and trust me some people will still raise the eligibility part. >> you used a lot of air quotes in today's political gut check. john, great to see you. >> air quotes means b.s. kate and i were looking online before the show. you don't have to be born in the united states to be naturalized and eligible for president. lot of people didn't know that including two thumbs pointing at this guy guy, if you have one or both parents u.s. citizens, you can be born anywhere, you're still eligible. that's what the constitution says so not an issue. it makes for political culture. we saw what happened with the president whether or not he was a citizen but sad commentary about the state of politics somebody feels by renouncing citizenship in canada. >> it's silly season. >> silly is a nice word though, like when you're mad at your kids, that was really silly what you did! it means something else. coming up on "new day" he

4:08 am
at the airport in rio de janeiro, glen greenwald, the report who broke the news about nsa leaker edward snowden hugged his partner, david miranda and angrily told reporters british authorities are going to regret what they did. "i'm going to write my stories a lot more aggressively than before" he said. "i'm going to publish many more documents now. i have a lot of documents about the espionage system in england." miranda said british agents citing an anti-terrorism law detained him at heath row airport for nine hours. he was on his way back to rio from berlin where he met with u.s. filmmaker laura poitress. she's worked with greenwald and snowden on stories about nsa surveillance. "they took my computer, video games, cell phone, everything," he said. the white house claims it did not ask britain to stop miranda,
4:09 am
but -- >> there was a heads up that was provided by the british government, so this is something that we had an indication was likely to occur but it's not something that we requested and it's something that was done specifically by the british law enforcement agents there. >> reporter: u.s. officials won't say whether they've got their hands on miranda's computer but the state department notes -- >> we do have a close law enforcement and intelligence relationship with the uk. >> reporter: neither the state department nor the white house is condemning miranda's detention, an indirect way of saying they think it's justified. greenwald meanwhile calls the detention of his partner a profound escalation of the government's attacks on the news gathering process and on journalism but the uk police are calling it legally and procedurally sound. chris? >> jill, thank you very much for the reporting. let's figure this out analytically. joining me is cnn's senior legal
4:10 am
analyst jeffrey toobin. >> good morning. >> always great to have you here. first question, is this payback/targeting, in your opinion? >> hard to tell, but it's important to point out, he was not just some tourist passing through. he was working with greenwald, his ticket was paid for by "the guardian" he was meeting with greenwald's partner, the filmmaker, and bringing documents and computer material back to greenwald, so it's not like they just sort of randomly harassed him. is he involved in this activity so i -- you can see why the british government wanted to get its hands on this material. >> allow for everything you see, does that make this okay, does it make it legal? does it go too far still? >> it's hard to say. remember this is great britain. great britain has tougher laws about secrets and secrecy than we do. they don't have the same freedom of the press. similar but not identical, and even more bizarre incident that
4:11 am
i think is totally indefensible that took place yesterday is that british agents went into "the guardian" newspaper and actually destroyed some computers because they thought there was some secret material on it. it was a futile, stupid harassment. i think that's indefensible. stopping and getting this material i think is a closer call. >> we go to the reaction, why is the u.s. involved in this? we didn't stop them. why are they making statements about this? why is greenwald implicating the u.s. in this? >> let me lay my cards on the table. i've been critical of greenwald throughout this process and the idea he's now engaged in revenge journalism that he says he's going to disclose more material because they stopped his partner, that's not how we're supposed to act. we're journalists because there's material to be published, not because we're angry at people. i'm not sure what happens now. presumably greenwald has the material and he's going to put it out there. >> the u.s. didn't do this.
4:12 am
>> that's right. we do have a close relationship as the white house spokesman said, but we didn't destroy the british newspaper's computers, we didn't stop him. i'm sure we were happy that he was and i'm sure that we will learn what was on that computer material, but this was a british operation, non-american one. >> it seems to add to the stink of this situation. the early criticism of snowden, if you wanted to be a patriot and put out information, go to the whistle-blower places, go to the media here in the u.s., do what you have to. he said i tried t didn't work but that was early criticism. now we have greenwald saying i don't like what did you to my partner. i am going to report more aggressively and put out more documents. what does that suggest about the situation? >> it's horrible. there are lots of journalists who have been very supportive of snowden and greenwald. i'm not. i don't think this is how the system is supposed to work. i think snowden is not a
4:13 am
patriot. i think he has done grave damage to the united states. i think there are thousands of people in this country who work hard to protect classified information, who are trying to do a decent job and the idea that he, on his own, could do this, and -- is just appalling to me and the fact that he brought this stuff to china and russia, two of the most repressive dictatorships in the world, is really totally disgraceful. >> another message to snowden, this is probably another reason he won't want to come back to the u.s., if this is the type of -- >> he's got a long list of those reasons. i think he's going to develop a taste for borscht and spend quite a few years in russia. >> maybe he'll get a ride on the crazy crane that drags you through the water. jeffrey toobin thank you. >> good to see you. let's move on to a case that captivated a country. after more than two weeks and 80

4:15 am
prove to be a painful side show, hasan, who is an army psychiatrist has not been told he cannot argue he killed american soldiers because in his view they were preparing to fight muslims in afghanistan and iraq. since he's acting out his own attorney he'll ask a series of questions for his standby attorneys to ask him. >> a defendant i believe has the right to, we know he has the right to represent himself and he has the right to do it poorly, and i think he has the right to ask for capital punishment. >> reporter: which leaves shooting survivors like christopher royal anxious for hasan to go away. >> i won't allow him to consume any more energy from my life that he's already done, and so i have released him. i've forgiven him completely, and it's not up to me to punish him.
4:16 am
>> reporter: ft. hood officials tell us there are only two witnesses on nidal hasan's witness list including himself. we'll see what leeway he gets from a judge and what he'll be able to say. there will be a great deal of attention paid to what he has to say. we expect it's possible nidal hasan could get his turn later on this afternoon. kate and chris? >> thank you for the reporting, ed. appreciate it. a lot of other news this hour, michaela, monitoring the situation in egypt. >> a calm in cairo this morning. new developments could fuel further unrest in egypt. police have captured the supreme leader of the muslim brotherhood. the u.s. is putting some of the billions of dollars in military aid to egypt on hold. the obama administration says it's reprogramming the funds pending a review. investigators are trying to figure out what made a 10,000 gallon fuel tanker explode in an industrial park in western

4:41 am
welcome back, everybody. this morning there are disturbing allegations against two virginia day care workers fired for allegedly mocking the children they were supposed to be caring for. one woman reportedly posted pictures of a kid on instagram and made fun of him. look at the background of the story. ethan jordan is a happy,
4:42 am
energetic 2-year-old but here he is sitting in a highchair which he no longer uses his usual smile replaced by a frown and his mother is heartbroke been it, that's because workers at heavenly haven learning center two placed had imin the chair and posted this picture to instagram purely to make fun of him. the day care center's manager joined in poking fun at ethan's delayed speech development writing in part "thinking, cuz sure can't talk." in another incident the employee mocked another child for his teeth. when ethan's mother, melissa saw the photo on instagram she was curious, alerted the day care center and the media. both the employee and the manager have since been fired for violating the kday care's privacy policy. in a statement the day care says a heavenly haven's position on the actions of the employees involved zero tolerance and the employees have been terminated. virginia's department of social services is now investigating.
4:43 am
joining us now on all of this is melissa jordan, her little son, ethan is the one you saw there at the top. melissa, thank you for joining us this morning. >> you're welcome. thanks for having me. >> now i hear ethan is there. i heard he's in a little bit of a mood. i got a toddler at home so i appreciate you just letting him do his thing because as we know you're not going to make them do whatever you want but tell us -- >> not going to happen. >> he's unaware of this at his age but you know what this is about all too well, yes? >> he's doing well. yes, he's unaware of what's going on because he's only 20. 2. >> it's got to hurt and i'm sorry. tell us how you found out about this? >> i found out through a mutual friend who happened to be instagram friends with her so she came upon the picture and said, this looks a lot like ethan, and she forwarded it to me and from there i was like wow, that looks a lot like ethan
4:44 am
and the outfit the little boy had on was what ethan wore to day care today. i was like wow this really is ethan and that's a how i fund out about it. >> putting your kid on instagram without your approval that's an obvious no-no but there's something deeper to talk about. ethan has delayed speech development, a lot of kids have that, they can grow into t get help, but you you put this kid into the care of these people and you see the photo online and how they're using it. what did it mean to you? >> it meant -- at my house we don't make fun of each other of our shortcomings, things that are out of our control and things that we -- things that we need extra help with we don't tease each other about. it was so foreign i figured they don't care about ethan. he's not important to them if they can do this to him and that's how i felt from that. >> that's your rule among family, those who have somewhat of a right to talk about each
4:45 am
other. here. >> exactly. >> this is one of the biggest fears i'd managimagine, you're putting your kid, day care, the big word is care in there. so what did it mean the people you were trusting with your child were acting this way? >> well, it just means to me that it wasn't somebody that i could trust and that they obviously don't love ethan and care for ethan anywhere near how i love ethan or care for ethan. >> do you think there's any good excuse for this? do you think that the day care center could come back and the people say it's a misunderstanding, you know, we love the kids, we were just being funny. do you think there's any of that here, any chance of that? >> that hasn't happened so i feel if they tried that, maybe i would be a little bit more understanding, like okay, it was an inappropriate joke. i'm not okay with it. there's no excuse for it but at
4:46 am
least i can understand the human error but that hasn't even happened. >> the place we're talking about, heavenly haven learning center two, they didn't want to do an interview with us. they put out the comment you heard in the piece there. have you heard from them? >> no. no one's reached out other than me -- when the incident first took place i took off work and i had a face-to-face with the director and other than that, there has been no contact. other than the contact i initiated. >> right and that was the right thing to do. there are other kids involved here. we have to make sure our kids are getting the best care possible especially by those supposedly trained and paid to do so. what is your message to the employees, to the day care center, what do you want them to know about how you feel? >> i want you to know that if you don't genuinely love and care for children and it's not a passion of yours, this isn't something you should be involved in. if you think it's funny that a child is delayed or if they're
4:47 am
not perfect or they have shortcomings, if that's a joke to you or something you think you should tease about that's not a job for you. that's how bullying starts, how children become bullies and insecure and that's how -- that isn't anything i want for ethan or i'm sure any parent wants for their children. >> they are reinforcing the worst of behavior and we are a'hoping they'll teach our kids to be their best. >> i agree. debris. >> melissa, you did the right thing, thank you for bringing out this story. we'll follow the investigation and see where it goes and give the little man a hug for us. i don't want him yelling and screaming on my show but you can give him a hug for me. >> i will. thank you. >> all right, good luck with everything, melissa. kate over to you. coming up next on "new day" a close call for one of america's most beloved entertainers, dick van dyke and his wife narrowly escaped a raging car fire. also a 12-year-old girl from michigan gets mauled by a bear and thankfully lives to tell the

5:02 am
an air tran flight had to be diverted to memphis last night after a passenger tried to open one of the plane's emergency exits mid flight. cnn's rene marsh is joining us with more. >> good morning, kate, i just got off the phone with the faa and they have confirmed with us this morning air tran flight 265 was the one that had to be diverted to memphis. it did land safely last night. local affiliates are reporting that the passenger who tried opening the emergency exit door was put into a police car and taken away. the plane with the passengers onboard then was able to take off and head to its final destination, which was austin, texas. it is worth noting that it is virtually impossible to open those exit doors while a plane is in flight, just simply because it is so pressurized within the cabin. the only way that that would be
5:03 am
possible is if for some reason the plane did lose pressure. but again, that is the status there. everyone onboard was able to get to their destination safely, kate. >> scary, scary trip and a pretty long delay i'm sure. thanks so much for the update, rene. >> whether you can do it or not, don't want people trying. that's for sure. we're going to head out west now, because fire crews are fighting the good fight there. some 49 wildfires raging right now in 11 western states. one of the worst, the beaver creek fire in central idaho. thousands had fled their homes. dan simon is live in haley, idaho, with the latest. dan? >> reporter: good morning, chris. with more than 100,000 acres burned, firefighters are using every resource at their disposal to get this under control. this fire is only 9% containment, with plenty of areas left to burn.
5:04 am
fire continuing to ravage one of the country's most scenic spots. a drive through the mountains and you can understand why many celebrities like tom hanks, arnold schwarzenegger and bruce willis chose this area to build vacation homes and why some insurance companies call in their own firefighters to help prevent a calamity. but as a red cross official told me -- >> many people think this is an affluent area, and it is, but many people are affected that are from different socioeconomic k backgrounds and that's who's staying with us. >> reporter: like this high school where we met orlanda. >> i think not knowing if we're going to have a home is the most nerve racking. >> reporter: the beaver creek fire is a true beast, surrounded by bone dry trees and brush, it's clear this fire could keep
5:05 am
burning a very long time. the key is to keep the flames away from homes, but the wind has a way of pushing the fire in different directions. >> we have plenty of resources right now and it's just a matter of having people at the right place at the right time, which i believe we do at this point in time. it's just a lot of work to go ahead and get this thing contained. >> well, rain is in the forecast and it could come as early as this evening, but with rain you have a mixed blessing that could produce thunderstorms and lightning and there's a concern that could ignite even more fires. kate? >> a long day ahead. dan, thank you so much. thousands of miles to the east, it's rain, not fire that's causing all the chaos. a stalled front threatening to soak everyone from the carolinas to the florida panhandle. anymore rain there could trigger flash floods. indra petersons has been tracking the weather. >> it will not let up. it's raining, what do you do, go to your apartment, want to hang
5:06 am
out. this is what happened in georgia, they go to their apartments and now they had rain go into the fair road apartments. their furniture was rolling around in the rain, their cars you can see the water level to the car doors. this is not the only place this is going on. take a look at the map. flood warnings stretching anywhere from the florida panhandle, all the way to the carolinas. where you see the bright green, that is flood warnings. that means it's imminent and already occurring in those areas. of course, more watches posted because even more rain is expected into the forecast. let's talk about what has been happening. look at the amount of rain since june. anywhere upwards from 20 to 30 inches of rain. how above normal is that? the southeast does get rain, but take a look. we're talking about ten to 15 inches above normal for this time of year and the stationary front is going to be staying in place, so we're going to be talking about two to three inches, four inches of rain
5:07 am
possible through thursday. that front is going to stay in place. no hope for now. >> all right, indra, thank you. let's move to the court marshal of major nidal hasan. he could testify at the end of his case. remember, he is representing himself in this court marshal. he's charged with murdering 13 and injuring 32. let's get to fort hood, texas, this morning. good morning, ed. >> reporter: good morning, kate. nidal hasan has already admitted he's the gunman. his assisting attorneys believe he's trying to get himself the death penalty. what will nidal hasan's defense strategy be? almost four years after the ft. hood massacre, nidal hasan will be center stage, expected to justify why he killed 13 fellow unarmed soldiers and injuring 32
5:08 am
others. >> if he testifies, which i suspect he will, to tell his story which essentially admits to the fundamental crimes and gives an excuse for doing so. >> reporter: for the victims' families, his testimony could be hard. in his view, they were preparing to fight muslims in afghanistan and iraq. since hasan is acting as his own attorney, he will write out a series of questions for his standby attorneys to ask him. >> a defendant, i believe, has a righting to -- we know he has the right to represent himself, and he has a right to do it poorly. and i think he has the right to ask for capital punishment. >> reporter: which leaves shooting survivors like christopher royal anxious for hasan to go away. >> i won't allow him to consume anymore energy from my life than he's already done. and so i have released him.
5:09 am
i've forgiven him, completely. and it's not up to me to punish him. >> reporter: and, chris, prosecutors only have a handful of witnesses left on their list. then it will be nidal hasan's turn and we're told right now he only has two witnesses on his list. whatever his defense strategy will be, it won't take long. >> thank you very much for the reporting now. moving on, new developments to tell you about in egypt this morning. the group's spiritual leader was arrested in cairo for inciting violence. now the obama administration has pulled the plug on some military aid to egypt. jill dougherty is live with that. good morning, jill. >> they are pulling the plug, but doing it very carefully. there's a reason. right now the administration is undertaking a major review, full
5:10 am
review of the aid that the united states gives to egypt. that, of course, is about $1.5 billion. what they are doing is not saying they are ending the aid. after all, the administration doesn't want to come down on either side at this point, so what they are doing is reprogramming while everything is under review. there's no decision, again, to permanently end it, but it avoids president obama having to take that step of saying is it a coup, isn't it a coup, which would then trigger a need, a legal necessity to end the aid. so again we're talking about $1.5 billion overall. most of that is in military aid. chris and kate? >> all right, jill, thank you very much for the reporting. a complicated situation, because you have such human causalities there and human rights issues on the ground, what you're going to do with the government, not easy to lead in these situations.
5:11 am
>> not easy to lead and a murky situation they've found themselves in. seems, obviously, a tough political situation they've got to get themselves out of. a lot of other news, as well. let's get right to michaela. >> let's do it. newly released court documents detail dzhokhar tsarnaev's injuries before his capture. a trauma surgeon testifying said tsarnaev had multiple gunshot wounds, including one through his mouth. tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty in the marathon bombings, which killed three people and wounded 260. james dimaggio left $112,000 in insurance money to hannah's grandmother. he named her as the policy's beneficiary. he was killed in the idaho wilderness. according to his sister, he wanted the money to go to hannah and her brother ethan because he thought the parents' relationship was too unstable to leave the money to them. a pop warner football league

5:13 am
>> that's the thing that you find strange about the photo. >> what a safe thing to say. >> safe and easy. let me be the one that has an opinion, it's fine, she's very successful and can wear a nice dress. it's okay. >> good enough for me. can i wear a nice dress and get away with it? >> see what happens off camera. >> we're on tv. >> oops. the white house is welcoming the newest member of the first family. wait for it, it's a puppy named sonny. portuguese waterdog, same breed as her big brother beau. >> i call it it a tuxedo. >> is that what they call it? he can still be taken seriously. athena jones is live at the white house with this one. good morning, athena. >> good morning, chris. a while back the first lady said she hosted a doggy play date
5:14 am

welcome back to "new day." an amazing story of survival. seven people have been attacked by bears in five states in just less than a week. well, one of them is 12-year-old abby wetherell. abby was running in the woods near her grandparent's home in northern michigan. that's nothing unusual, but then a black bear attacked her, not once, but twice.
5:37 am
incredibly, abby survived and she's joining me now, along with her mother. a very thankful mother, relieved mother, i'm sure, elizabeth. it's great to see both of you. of course, of course, abby, first to you. how are you feeling this morning, i think that's what everyone cares about. >> i'm feeling okay. still in a lot of pain, but it will go away soon. >> it will go away. that's very much a good thing. kind of walk us through exactly what happened. you were jogging in the woods, you do that often. when did you know that you were in trouble? >> i knew i was in trouble when i saw the bear charging after me, because i knew i wasn't going to be able to outrun the bear. because it was far enough from my house and from my cabin that i couldn't run that fast, that far. it was just very terrifying, very scary. >> of course, it was. not only did the bear catch up to you and attack you once, the
5:38 am
bear went away a little bit, then you tried to run again and it attacked you twice. do you remember feeling anything or anything anything in particular when this was happening? >> i remember thinking i'm going to die, i'm not going to survive this. this bear's going to kill me. this is it. i'm a goner. and i couldn't really feel it. it was just my whole body was numb and it just really hurt. >> i was reading that at one point you even tried petting the bear to try to calm it down? >> yeah. the second time it kind of stopped by me and i was like, good bear. please, don't hurt me. that didn't work. >> elizabeth, your daughter really takes this entire experience in stride, but she needed 100 stitches and suffered some very deep cuts in her thighs, as well as in her back. what do you make of this entire
5:39 am
experience? obviously, first and foremost, just relieved that she's okay. >> oh, absolutely. you never want your children to hurt, and you want to protect them and keep them safe. you know, this is a run that she would do every single day in a place that she's familiar with. and for her to get hurt out there like that, it was absolutely the scariest thing i've ever experienced in my life. >> absolutely. >> me, too. >> that's for sure. abby, the thing that seemed to kind of save you in the end, you ended up playing dead. what made you think to do that in such an outrageous, you know, situation? >> i thought i had nothing else to lose. i mean, it might save my life, so why not do it? that's what i did. the bear ran away, then looked back, then ran away more and looked back. he just kept looking back at me. i'm thinking, oh, my gosh, this bear is going to come back and kill me. and then it just ran away.
5:40 am
that was good. >> so how did you end up -- the bear ended up going away. were you able to get up and make it back to the cabin, make it back to your family? how did it all end then? >> i got up and i started running to my house, which wasn't far, and then i saw one of my neighbors, her name is laura, and when i saw her face, i just thought everything is going to be fine. everything is going to be okay. i'm going to live. so it was all thanks to her. >> yeah, i mean, your wounds are healing. you've got amazing humor and perspective on this entire thing. are you going to be running in the woods any time soon? >> not alone, but i'll run on my road probably, yeah. >> elizabeth, what are the lessons learned here, i guess, or what are the lessons you're trying to teach elizabeth and your other daughter? >> well, the lesson for abby would be next time she's not
5:41 am
running by herself. i decided maybe i needed to pick up some jogging. i could lose a few pounds, it wouldn't be a bad thing. just to know where they are going at all times and really be careful and maybe take a phone with them when they run, something if something does happen they can get help quickly. >> abby, you look fabulous and we're so happy you're able to be here and tell us your story. what a story you have to tell now. have a good day. >> yes, she does. >> thank you, you, too. >> thank you. amazing. >> very lucky kid. >> yeah. >> very lucky kid. you know, what are you going to do, can't do anything differently. you want to run in the woods, run in the woods. >> not like she asked for a bear to come after her. >> usually black bears -- and i think it was a black bear. >> it is counterintuitive, the little i know about bears, it's counterintuitive how you should react if you can think about it when a black bear comes upon you, this is not the type of
5:42 am
bear you play dead for. you walk away slowly. you're not supposed to run. you're supposed to try to intimidate the bear. >> it's also counterintuitive to everything i learned growing up, they are generally more afraid of us than we are of them. this one aggressively pursued her, maybe because she was running. she seemed like prey or something. >> it's just a suggestion, not like they've sat down at some bear summit. the bear said, look, if you do this, we're not going to eat you. >> there's no bear summit? >> you catch your trails. you can carry bear spray, you know, if you're going to run in those situations, a lot of naturalists do, but the truth is you got to hope on luck and she got a lot of luck, this girl. more than most. >> how sweet is that she tried to pet the bear to try to calm it down? >> presence of mind to do that, i guarantee, your parents, you always love your kids but love them 105% when they've gotten lucky. hopefully, the silver lining,
5:43 am
that family is closer together than ever. >> sweet girl. not a bad segue. the adorable first photos of prince george have been released. this is a family very close together. close as they ever been, the newest british royal is four weeks old but is already making quite an impression. cnn royal correspondent max foster joining now with more, including a little hate for the photographer there. >> yeah. this was a big break in tradition. this was not a formal photo shoot. these weren't professional photographs. these were taken by some family member. a picture perfect family, william, kate, and little prince george, born less than a month ago. the first official photos of the royal bundle of joy released on monday by kensington palace. contrary to royal former babies of the past, these family photos were snapped by the baby's grandfather, michael middleton
5:44 am
in the backyard garden of the middleton family home in buc l bury. >> they've been going about it in a much more casual way. >> the proud parents look relaxed. kate beaming in a purple dress, while george sleeps comfortably, swaddled in her arms. a luxury occurrence according to prince william. >> he's growing quickly, he's a fighter, wriggles around a lot. >> in one photo, the family's four-legged friends join the fun, tilly, the middleton family retriev retriever, and lupo, t. the first official photos weren't without controversy. granddad's experience behind the lens is coming under question. the uk press criticizing the quality of the historic pictures, claiming the photos are very flat and there's not a great deal of contrast to them.
5:45 am
and the parents are also out of focus in both pictures. >> prince william and kate, they very much try to live a very normal life. this is what we do. people take their own photos. >> so the question is, charming or inappropriate? >> let it linger. i think it's charming. >> i do, too. >> max doesn't. gave it away in the question, charming -- >> i think they are charming. they are historic photos and you're going to go back to these sort of poor quality ones, but they were taken by mr. middleton. >> that's what parents do, take pictures of their kids. >> there will be much more to come. >> thanks so much. of course, we want to remind you, you do not want to miss cnn's special this september, "prince william's passion: new father, new hope." coming up, war of words heating up. officials challenge the slugger

5:47 am
tacopina continues to avoid the only relevant question, did rodriguez use performance-enhancing drugs, the rest of what he says is to distract people from the real issues. >> why is the rodriguez team not being as strong in coming out saying look, he did not use performance-enhancing drugs. >> you understand who some of these lawyers are. we're in the midst of some of the best lawyers in new york city. >> as an attorney you know it's a simple statement, my client did not use performance-enhancing drugs. >> because there is a confidentiality clause. >> reporter: there is a confidentiality agreement in place while rodriguez appeals his 211-game suspension. in a letter to tacopina, major league baseball is willing to waive those provisions of the confidentiality clause, saying tacopina is free to talk about information. mlb says it has evidence rodriguez used p.e.d.s, allegedly provided by the frmer
5:48 am
antiaging clinic biogenesis. >> reporter: what can you tell us about what relationship, if any, rodriguez had with biogenesis? >> clearly, there was a relationship. >> what kind of relationship? >> a consulting relationship. >> reporter: jason carroll, cnn, new york. >> thanks, jason. jason's asking all the right questions, no one is giving answers right now. >> they'll come. just a matter of time. that's bad stuff in sports. you know what that means, time for the good stuff. today's edition, a miracle reunion between a dog and owner that wouldn't have been possible without the power. good stuff. jen loved her belove ed rottwe r rottweiler. she thought she'd never see her again, but then a miracle, sasha popped up in a shelter thousands of miles away in phoenix, arizona. workers there got jen's number from sasha's microchip and called her. >> i never thought i was ever going to see her again, you
5:49 am
know, i thought about her all the time, i always thought about her, wondered what happened to her. i still have all of her pictures, because she was a part of our family. i don't know where she's been, who she's been with, or what she's been through. i just hope whoever had her gave her a good life. >> doggies are family in indiana, and this hurt for sure. that could be the good stuff right there, right? wrong. right after the shelter told jen they found sasha, they told her they'd euthanize the dog if jen couldn't get from indiana to phoenix in a couple days. jen had no way to make the trip, let alone on that amount of time, so that's when volunteers from the kindred hearts transportation connection stepped in, an organization made just for this purpose, to help reclaim dogs when they are too far away for you to get to them. they picked up sasha in time and volunteers drove sasha as far as they could go, all the way back to indiana. in all, it took 26 volunteers two weeks to get sasha back to a
5:50 am
grateful jen. take a look. >> it's a moment like this that we do what we do. it's just seeing the dogs get back to their owners. it's great. >> wow. >> stacey goveia there, one of the members of the organization, and they are made of volunteers, they are always looking for more drivers. if you're willing and able, check out kindredheartstransportation connection on facebook. >> that's incredibly powerful. >> that is the good stuff, ladies and gentlemen. >> how many people came together to help out? >> 26 over two weeks to reunite sasha with jen and her family. >> five years later, i can't imagine. i remember as a kid we lost a dog, never seen it again. >> good argument for the microchip, by the way. a lot of people say i don't want to do that to the dog. >> how did that dog end up in phoenix? wow. indiana is much better. >> true.
